^Vitali is still unsure whether he will continue boxing or not.

%Haye sees no point in fighting unless it’s against a Klitschko, and the only Klitschko he has a chance of landing a fight with is Vitali…

*Chambers is expected to make his Cruiserweight debut shortly (I’ve wrote this for months now). He’ll probably rate there when he does. Or he’ll just be unrated in both weight classes by June due to inactivity…
